If Your Birthday is June 18
(The Day of Financial Security) | Gemini Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
You’re in a much better position than you may think, though you need to use your power rather than wishing you could. Once you do that dependably, you’ll see where your power went, and you’ll start to get it back. Always remember that you have options. When in doubt, list them out; and if you don’t like your list, come up with a few more.
Written in the Planets
The Sun is making contact with both Uranus and Pholus, which may give today quite a chaotic feel. Yet whatever chaos appears is likely to be expected, and perhaps even welcome: this is the kind of change that’s a wake up and a shake up, focused on something that has likely needed improvements for a good while. You don’t need to do anything other than ride out the shifts; then you’ll have plenty of leisure to assess the altered landscape.
